The knives, were issued one per year in individual special presentation boxes from 1984 to 1989. In February of the final year, the entire six-knife set was offered in a large wooden presentation case (AN: 1 90 92/1.90.91). Each design in the series is limited to 5999 pieces and each knife is individually numbered with a deep stamp on the reverse of the tang and accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
Each of the knives have the same tool configuration essentially taken from the Commander model, but without the tweezers, toothpick, or key ring. Each knife has the artist's signature on the scale. The scenes are on both the front and back scales and on one side of the blade. Scenes on the left side of the scale are mirrored on the right side. The scenes on the blade are select segments from the scene on the scales.
